I suppose that the good Dr. was only talking about place kickers in the NFL. One of the best punters in the history of the game was Reggie Roby, played for Miami for years. Also, I presume he means by black, African-American blacks as most NFL kickers since the advent of the soccer-style kick have come from all over the world Though he is correct that the overwhelming majority of NFL place kickers have been caucasian. Since the position does not pay as much, and is not admired (sexy), a growing number of foreign nationals or naturalized citizens have been place kickers in the NFL in the last 40 years. Young males in America generally want to be a QB, RB, or WR, they get the big bucks.
